The myth tells a sacred history, a primordial event, spent “at the beginning of time”; by revelation, it becomes a justification of the validity of sacred history and religious traditions.
The exhibition presents a selection of European paintings, 16th to 18th c., while the narrative comprises mythological, biblical, literary, historical and everyday life characters.
On display are to be seen joined illustrations of the Olympian legends, sequences of church history, allegories and scenes from the daily life of common people. The latter are those who continually reopen the cycles through which humanity seeks and assumes the trans-human models, thus acquiring the right to transcendence.
